CASPA is a simple and intuitive tool for the analysis and evaluation of attainment and progress for pupils with Special Educational Needs who are working significantly below age-related expectations. It supports your school’s self-evaluation and school improvement activities by providing intelligent and user-friendly interpretation of assessments and targets for individual pupils, for cohorts of pupils within your school and at whole-school level. CASPA makes use of existing data wherever possible, including the historic data required to track progress over time, thus ensuring you derive maximum benefit from your data for minimum administrative effort (CASPA, 2017).
